Our family had an amazing experience! First we were greeted by gracious guest services to book the activities for our day. We then started it off with an airboat ride with Andrew. He was friendly and an excellent boatman. Loved the water buffalo! Next we toured exhibits and had a delicious lunch. Gator nuggets tasted just like chicken. The smoothies... More

This is not some road side mediocre attraction. It is an actual safari with authentic rides. The animals are well fed and taken care of, many things to do and see. If you sign up for the full package, it includes 2 animal shows that were very entertaining and full of interesting facts. Additionally there is an air boat ride... More

Airboat ride was 30 minutes and we hoped for it to be longer to see more wildlife. Wildlife center has panther and gators but Safari Buggy ride has animals that are not native to Florida. Critter show was nice but snake show was better. Overall good spot to visit for tourists and native floridians. Alliw a couple of hours for... More

It was a great way to spend the day! The buggy ride with Kyle was the highlight of the trip. He was interesting, informative, and had a subtle sense of humor that added to the excursion. The park itself was clean, well cared for, and the animals were treated well and in natural habitats. The drawback was the poorly run... More

While on a visit from New York State to our son in Ft Lauderdale, he arranged for us to come to Billie Swamp Safari. We had a great time! Such an interesting variety of native and non-native critters and plant life! The walking paths and buildings were beautiful and well-maintained. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. The air boat... More

I thought this place was excellent. We got there early and were first ones out on the air boats. Our guide was very informative. We got the all day package which includes the air boat ride into the everglades, the swamp buggy ride, snake show, and critter show. There are lots of animals and birds to see and trails through...

Arriving early for the first ride is the best! Nature is so still and pristine at that time. We are so glad you were able to experience that special moment and enjoyed your day with us. Thank you again for sharing your experience and visiting our park. More

Billie's Swamp Safari filled the afternoon for us. Very clean and well kept adventure on the Seminole Reservation off alligator alley. Pleasantly surprised of the types of wildlife they had on the 2000 acre preserve. All staff were friendly and knowledgeable about what they were presenting. Jesse Jr. and Kyle were great attraction operators.

Nice way to spend a few hours when going from the west to east coast of Florida. A bit off the beaten track and we couldn't get the address on the sat nav but friendly people in nearby Clewiston helped us out...definite highlight for me was the talking birds - I still laugh now when I see the video now!!
